The effortless inky marks and washes of bright colours make Brooklyn-based artist and designer Danielle Kroll’s illustrations charming and beautiful in their simplicity.

Danielle’s designs capture the best elements of sketchbook work in the final images. The quality of the brushstrokes, the whimsically wonky edges, the watery swathes of pinks and oranges, all help keep the immediacy and energy of the drawings.
